These Are Our Favorite Romantic Things to do in St. Augustine
Take a Stroll Through Downtown St. Augustine
The best way to take in that classic St. Augustine charm is to take a romantic stroll through the Ancient City. As you tour the historic district from Cordova street to St. George Street to Aviles Street, you’ll fall in love with your sweetheart all over again. Once you’ve traversed all the lovely streets, top off your romantic stroll with a visit to The Bridge of Lions and take in the gorgeous sights of the Matanzas River.
Pro-tip: Although a stroll during the day is splendid, one of the best things to do at night in St. Augustine is walk through the cobblestone-paved streets. The Historic Coast’s charm and St. Augustine lights make the city radiate romance like you’ve never seen before.
